Google.org in collaboration with and Vermilion Films released a documentary film “The Final Inch”, a 38-minute film about the historic global effort to eradicate polio, filmed primarily in India and Afghanistan, documenting the front lines of public health in some forgotten corners of our world.

Filmed in high-definition (HD) in cinematic style — wide open shots to give a strong sense of place — The Final Inch captures their stories, and we hope it is both a tribute and an inspiration of hope. The film will air nationally on HBO in 2009. You can visit TheFinalInch.org, where you can view clips from the film and learn more about the people and the organizations tirelessly working on this global effort.
